're stronger when we run america from the bottom up. when people have more money in their pocket. when families have more wealth and people get jobs. and the greatest issue in america today is jobs. and the reason is mom and dad are working, the family is stronger t children are stronger. it all works for a stronger america and stronger communities. that is what mitt romney and paul ryan will give us, stronger families and stronger communities. and it's not theory. i have to tell you ladies and gentlemen if there's anything we need no government today it's people who know how to create jobs. we need that and mitt romney has been a successful job creator and when they attack him those are people that don't understand how to rise america. he's a proven job creator and then he went into government. and he took the state of massachusetts from deficits to surplus, from job losses to job gains. and let's think about his pure leadership capability in those olympics. he didn't lead with a title and he didn't lead with anything other than the ability of a human being to raise the bar of everybody else.
the hardship of the crisis. we will do it together because that is what we do in the united states of america.

[applause] tonight, i chose to speak from the chamber of the texas house of representatives because it has been home to bipartisan cooperation. here where democrats have the majority, republicans and democrats have worked together to -- we have had spirited disagreements and in the end we found constructive consensus. it is an experience i will always carry with me and an example will follow. i want to thank my friend, pete laney, and thank the lettis leaders from both political parties with whom of worked. across the hall in our tax is the senate and i cannot tell but bigelow ritual front, the former governor. his love for taxes if -- texas and ability to work in a bipartisan way is a model for all bus. -- all of us.

is not resonating with 21st century america. if you continue on the same track the party will keep losing ground. host: from "the weekly standard," in both cases president bush and president obama winning by a margin of victory by 2.4%. guest: that does not surprise me. i knew it was going to be minutes before the republican party through mitt romney under the bus. i do think he was a weak candidate, but the republicans nominated him as a behind him and insisted he was the answer to america's prayers. they did not have any choice. when you look at the other choices in the primary, who would have done a better job? herman cain? michele bachmann? jeb bush did not run. they got stuck with mitt romney. host: california has gone from a republican to a purple to a solid democratic state. what has changed? ronald reagan winning back in 1984. guest: i am proud to take a little bit of credit for that four at one time being the democratic party chair in california. the republican party is a mirror of the national republican party in the sense that i think they lost track of where the country was moving. r
america's health care, sunday night on "q &a." >> reaction to tuesday night's reflection results -- election results from conservatives. this is 40 minutes. >> afternoon and thank you for coming. i am chairman of conservative hq.com. i will speak for a few minutes and introduce five nationally- recognized conservative leaders and we will each tour -- each talk for a little bit and we'll open it for q &a. the battle to take over the republican party begins today and the failed republican leadership should resign. out of last night's disaster comes good news -- conservatives are saying never again are we going to nominate eight big government establishment republican for president. what's more, we won't have to. conservatives now have a deep bench of new national leaders and potential presidential candidates. the election of conservatives to the senate and the election of conservative mike pence, the election of other boat-rcjkers the house show that this will end the big government conservatives. the virginia attorney general and the 50 odd members of the house stood for conservat
of america and to the republic for which it stands, one nation under god, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all. the speaker: the chair will entertain up to five requests for one-minute speeches on each side of the aisle. for what purpose does the gentleman from south carolina rise? mr. wilson: mr. speaker, i ask unanimous consent to address the house for one minute and to revise and extend my remarks. the speaker: without objection. mr. wilson: mr. speaker, last wednesday's newspaper, a retired foreign service officer wrote a letter with questions regarding the terrorist attack in benghazi, libya. retired foreign service officer, william boudreau, worked in the state department operations center, which serves as a direct line of communications to all american missions. based on his service, boudreau is confident that alerts from benghazi were delivered to the white house during the attack. boudreau believes the following questions must be explained -- why the delay in labeling the attack as terrorism, why did they allow ambassador stevens go to benghazi? why did they refuse
for america. guest: i think he is right on one thing. the fannie mae and freddie mac meltdown was certainly caused by the house in bubble. that has done a great disservice -- was done a great disservice by congress in encouraging lending to those individuals who did not have sufficient downpayment or did not have the wherewithal to guarantee they would be able to pay back their mortgage loans. that certainly created a house in bubble. -- housing bubble. that did start at the end of the bush administration. we are now four years past the start of the obama administration, and i think we have had sufficient time to address the concerns. the fact is, the economy has not improved. we have averaged over 8% unemployment for the entire term of president obama's tenure in office. we have to continue to look for change, could change that will create those jobs and get this economy moving again. we will address the tremendous debt this country has, $16 trillion in debt, increased over $5 trillion under president obama. if we have another four years of president obama, our national debt will exceed $2
or the economy or america's standing in the world. these are the ones who have recklessly ignored the fact we cannot keep running trillion dollar deficits every year. somebody suggests that maybe the taxpayers should not keep subsidizing every last program. their reckless and idiotic approach threatens our very future. anyone who is serious about solving the problems we face should ignore all of that, starting with the president. the election is over, but the economy and fiscal problems of the past several years have only gotten worse. it is time for the president to present a plan that rises above these reckless and radical voices on the hard left, that goes beyond the talking points of the campaign trail, and that has a realistic chance of passing the congress. the time for campaigning is over. it is time for the president to lead. a little over a week ago, i attended a meeting with the president at the white house that was positive and productive. afterwards, i was confident that all sides were eager to figure out a solution to the challenges. as i've said repeatedly, the only person in am

for a while in central america and i had some friends who worked for drug interdiction for the united states government. i asked them sit true that about 2.7 sents out of ever dollar on drug interdiction does the job. they said yes that's right. if you're in the drug biz or thinking about going into the drug business, think about this for a minute. >> well if i go into the drug business, i have a 97% chance of success. if you compare that to the chance of failure if you do a legitimate start up anywhere in the world. what you have to asay to yourself is if you have a 97% chance of going into the drug business then why not, let's go do it. 97% of all the money we spend on drug interdiction is going down the rat hole. if we made it legal, we would as you pointed out the drug cartels we would put a serious dent in them and they might i go away. we would be able to tax it. if you look at the states that have medical marijuana in this country it is now understood that the marijuana legalization is helping lift those committees out of their own recessions. >> is it time to end the prohibition? >>
america. he need a champion. that teacher who is in an overcrowded classroom, digging into our own pocket for school supplies -- her own pocket for school supplies, not getting the support she needs, but knowing every day she is a touching that one child. she needs a champion. all those kids in inner-city and small farm towns, the valleys of ohio, and these rolling virginia hills, kids dreaming of becoming scientists or doctors or diplomats or businessmen or even of president, they need a champion in washington because they do not have lobbyists. the future never has lobbyists. but it is the dreams of those children that will be are saving grace. that's why i need you, virginia. to make sure their voices are heard. to make sure your voices are heard. we have come too far to turn back now. ur've come too far to let o hearts grow fainter. now is the time to keep pushing forward. educate all our kids, train our workers, create new jobs, rebuild the infrastructure, discover new sources of energy, grow our middle class, restore our democracy and make sure that no matter who you are, but no mat
. >> thank you. for those who believe that america is founded is the greatest country in the history of the world, we wanted someone who would fight for us. we wanted a fighter like ronald reagan who boldly championed america opposing founding principles who inspired millions of independence and reagan democrats to join us and who fought his leftist opponents on the -- idea that america was a shining city upon a hill. what we got was a week moderate candidate handpicked by the beltway elite and country club establishment wing of the republican party. the presidential loss is unequivocally on them. with a catastrophic loss, the tea party is the last best hope america has to restore her founding principles. while it may take longer to restore with president, back in office we're not going away. it took nearly 100 years to take america to the place where we are today. it will take more than 3 1/2 years to restore our constitution. we're going to keep fighting. we respect the constitution and we now that for america to succeed, we need to continue educating americans on our core principl
the accumulation of wealth in america. that is hard to figure out. if you look at what has happened since this recession, the stock market has doubled. that does not sound like socialism to me. we are on the way back. our working people are still struggling. the people at the top have continued to separate themselves from the rest of our society, but the stock market has doubled. do not tell me we are on the way down. we are on the way up. i want everybody who is working people in this country to be carried a long way. that is the difference between our parties. when i decided almost two years ago i would not run for reelection in the senate, one of the first calls i made was to team cain regents -- was to tim cain. i have come to know him. i have come to value his integrity. i have come to listen to his judgment. i have come to believe in his commitment he has made to the principles of fairness and social justice in our country. i urged him to work to become my successor in the united states senate, to work to become senator warner's partner as we continue to pursue the goals i have been
future, controlling my own destiny in the united states of america. [cheers and applause] and like i told you guys in the song, ok, next level. one way or another, we are going to get there. [speaking foreign language] and that means we are moving forward. we are moving up, and we are not looking back. so with that said, you do not have got -- do not have to worry. to me, it is a bad word. what we have to worry about is sticking together and doing it together, and that is what we are doing today. it does not matter if we are black, pink, purple, orange. we are all, so with that said, which gracias -- muchas gracias. thank you so much. god bless, and god bless america.

, the new kids on the block. 99% of new jobs in america come from companies that are less than five years old. u.k. research shows 6% of companies with the fastest growth rate generate over half of the new jobs. yet government policy here has often been stacked against these start-ups. when i became prime minister, these companies were not even allowed to bid on central government contracts. 70% of government i.t. spending just went to government multinationals. we are changing that, tearing up the rules, spending hundreds of millions of dollars to stimulate investment, getting behind technology wherever it starts to emerge. we're working with the london stock exchange to make it easier for companies across europe to float here in london, because that is a vital part of how we track the entrepreneurial businesses and investors to generate the jobs and growth we need. there are those who think that a modern industrial strategy is just about acquiring the regions. yes, our country has become far too centralized. but we are changing that. we need bold, national decisions as well. cross rail,

[applause] >> thank you for that kind introduction. i am always reminded of my father, who was an immigrant from italy with my mother, and my earliest recollections were washing in the back of the restaurant. my parents believed that child labor was a requirement. then he bought a farm in carmel valley after the war. he planted walnut trees and i remember working in the walnut orchard. my father would go around -- when the trees got older we would go around and shake the branches, and my brother and i would be collecting walnuts. when i got elected to congress, my father said, you have been well trained to go to washington, because you have been dodging nuts your whole life, and i have been successfully dodging them my whole life. i listen to the positions, and i will tell you a story. when events occurred at the cia last week, my wife immediately gave me a call. [laughter] she said, i hope there is no way the president is going to ask you to take that jo
was around having a balanced plan to address america's fiscal challenges. there are serious fiscal challenges that we do need long term -- deficit reduction -- that is important to america's credibility. it is important for america's economy and economic growth. that plan has to be balanced, and that means significant revenues and that paying has to go around. that means the wealthy and well- off have to pay their fair share as well. these should not be new issues. they are ones that were debated. they came up in every debate -- even the foreign policy debate. the american people are on the side of the president and democrats who are making this case. that is not to say that there should not be spending as part as this debate. there has been over $1 trillion in spending cuts. that is a part of this debate that gets lost. just because washington has a short memory does not mean we should all have one and that there has already been sacrifice on behalf of the american people through those domestic discretionary cuts. we are excited. c.a.p. has been a lot of work on the fiscal cliff. we have tal

in virginia? guest: a very good question. virginia was once the ticket splitting capital of america literally. this was back in the 1970's. we have three elected offices -- governor, lieutenant governor, attorney general. we actually had at the same time and republican governor, independent the tenant governor and democratic attorney general. one of our two u.s. senators was an independent, elected twice. an independent missed winning the governorship by 15,000 votes over a million passed in 1973. we were the ticket splitting capital of america. we have cents settled back into partisan voting with the rest of america. this is a very polarized era. having said that, when you have close elections you still have a band of voters who will mix and match on the ballot, either because they want to mix and match or they are simply reacting to the individual candidates. in the case of romney and kaine, i have personally been in situations where straw votes were taken among large groups and you generally find you have 3, 4, 5% of the romney boaters picking tim kane for various reasons. some of these ro

for going out of your way to attend this campus debate. 20 years ago, my father made his journey in america. he came with many obstacles. no friends or family members to make his life here easier in america. but there is one thing that he had and that was belize. a belief that here it into this nation, if you work hard and are patient and take responsibility for your actions, you can build for success. and believe that in america, you can ensure that your children will have a life you never had. regardless of who you are, where you come from, who you love, what you worship or what political belief you hold to, that you have a right to freedom with the restraints are boundaries. this is what my father believed to be the american dream. this is still the american dream. we go to our ancestors, parents, children and ourselves. to make sure we make this american dream and american reality. today we live in a time of restricted freedom. for the wireless tapping conducted in the paycheck act -- in the patriot act. and the timing and strikes are a common occurrence -- and a time when gun checks ar

that america had a great senate from the early 1960's through 1980, a group of people who were focused on the national interests and were in the forefront of every issue facing the country. it is the senate of hubert humphrey, howard baker, robert and ted kennedy, robert dole and many others. they were an unusual group and they were triggered, in my estimation, by their war experience, the need for dealing with the cold war, and a progressive impulse that focused on some moral imperatives starting with civil rights. what you see is that senate was at the forefront of everything and accomplish an enormous amount over that period of time. host: what is it about the times we live in now makes the operation of the senate different from the way the senate operates during the time you were writing about between 1962 and 1980? guest: i always say it is harder to be a search senator today with the demands of campaign fund-raising -- to be a senator today with the demands of campaign fund-raising and the type of media we have, 24 our media, political conversation on facebook and twitter - 24-ho
